Safe Harbour helps ensure that vulnerable local people receive the hospice care they need, are able to live well with their incurable illness, and die with dignity in a place of their choice.
Safe Harbour was set up in 2016 and is run in collaboration with Macmillan Cancer Support to help tackle inequalities in care.
“Traditionally, people from underserved groups have an opinion that ‘hospice’ means end of life. So when you mention the word, they think they’re going to die straight away.
"I introduce the idea of hospice to them early on and support them with symptom management, along with emotional, psychological, social and financial issues, so when they do deteriorate, they feel part of St Helena Hospice and feel safe that we’re going to support them.”
Since Safe Harbour's launch, referrals to St Helena have increased significantly in areas of deprivation and we have developed key relationships with homeless support groups, neighbourhood schemes and services for vulnerable people.
If you think Safe Harbour can support you, please contact Debbie Pigeon by calling SinglePoint on 01206 890 360.
